    LMAO. As if V's endless voicings don't count as a sonic attack by themselves. :P

    Great comic, Mr. Giant. Glad to see them coming more frequently, hehe.

    I never prepared any Sonic spells, either.

    Brilliant as always!

    Out of curiosity, just how many trees does he have up and around? That could potentially be an awful lot of energy protecting. Perhaps he prepared scrolls in advance.

    as for sonic damage, it would be the vibrations that would damage you.

    I'm guessing the Giant anticipated this question, and answered it in the title.

    That said: Ahahaha. Too bad he barred Conjuration, or maybe he would have been able to summon the Hedgehog :P

    Judging by the strip's title, I'm going to assume that Jack Vance wrote the magic system used in 3.x D&D.

    Close.

    Jack Vance is a fantasy and science fiction author who wrote a series of fantasy novels (called "The Dying Earth") that had wizards who memorized their spells daily and then forgot them when they were cast. Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson consciously adapted that system when they invented D&D in the late 1970's.

    And yeah, that's why they call it, "Vancean".

    EDIT: Wikipedia is your friend! Jack Vance and the Dying Earth series.
    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.

    "...a brief pause in the battle? Say, about 8 hours or so?"

    But I do wonder how sonic can affect the trees...they don't have ears...unless the sonic spell makes them crack in 2 ;D

    Awesome comic.
    The magic system in D&D (all incarnations, by the way) was first invented by Jack Vance (which is why it's called the "Vancian" magic system).

    Now I think we can add another antiposition to the Evil Opposites list:

    He's Stupid. &quot;Advancing the cause of environmental preservation&quot; indeed. And by leading trees into a battle, where they will all end up toasted one way or another.

    A brief pause in the battle, say eight hours or so. Priceless.

    And an Evil (but enviromentally-friendly) druid. Who would have thought?

    Wow. The thread is only a half hour old, and I have to settle for page 2. But anyways, insert obligatory &quot;woot&quot;, as this matches my best effort yet. :P

    Ah, but now the question to be answered is will Leeky agree to pause the battle for eight hours, in order to protect the trees from sonic damage on the off-chance that another person just happens to have a sonic spell memorised? More likely though he would just continue the rampage.

    Something that I like seeing is the similarities showing between Leeky and Vaarsuvius. Even as Leeky isn't supposed to be Vaarsuvius-esque as much as Anti-Durkon there have been some wonderful paralels. (mad. MAD!)
